Cordele police are searching for a shooter or shooters who wounded two men late Wednesday night.

"According to the victims, they were just there talking. We don't know what caused it, what started it. We're still trying to work those details out," said Sgt. Jeremy Taylor of the Cordele Police Department

Sergeant Taylor says the area where the shooting happened has been a problem area for them the last several months and there has been considerable gang activity in the complex.

They are going to continue to increase patrols in the area. Right now, there have not been any suspects named.

Just a few days ago Cordele police were on the lookout for an armed robber who targeted employees when a store opened.

The Eastside Grocery store on 8th Avenue has been robbed several times since last year. Police say the store's location makes it a target for these robbers. Officers try to ride by the business at least five times per shift.

The most recent robbery happened that morning. Detectives say many of these robbers have been getting away in nearby cars.
